7.55pm So, that'll do for tonight. What a remarkable contest that was. England can't help but keep their contests interesting at the moment. Up with this sort of thing, and huge congratulations to South Africa for a massively uplifting win. Matt Roller's report is ready to roll... from Valkerie and myself, good night and see you in Durban for a Valentine's Day special!
Quinton de Kock. "Interesting towards the end there... it was very tight, but we knew we had to keep to our basics, here in East London it gets really slow and tough to bat on in the last five overs. I was still calm the whole way, win or lose, you can't control, but the way we went about it pleased me."
"Temba batted really well for us, great to see him playing like this. We will enjoy tonight, then plan for the second game, stay ruthless and do the right things."
Lungi Ngidi is the Player of the Match. "It wasn't a great day at Johannesburg, but here it's not over until the last ball is bowled. Run in hard as you can. hit your length, and all of a sudden their team was on the back foot. Very fast-paced game, but it's about how you bounce back. I didn't panic under pressure, they seemed to be cruising but my job was to get wickets."
7.47pm Time for some presentations. Here's Eoin Morgan: "Outstanding game of cricket, experiences like this are so valuable as a team, you learn more about both sides under pressure. Both sides left everything on the field, but we can make up more than that. We were in a commanding position but Ngidi changed the game in overs 18 and 20.
"Roy is a gamechanger, the top three is three of the finest white-ball batsmen we've ever produced."
"With all the games I've played I'd have liked to see it through, but I'll continue with my method, I've enjoyed my cricket thanks to the guys I'm playing with. It's been thoroughly enjoyable."
7.40pm What remarkable scenes. England look rather stunned, but of all the close ones to lose, I suspect they wouldn't swap this for other recent cliffhangers!
James : "Why should Morgan's team mates have closed it out? Lower order and new to the crease. Not easy. " Moeen is better than lower order, but I agree it wasn't easy, especially against a bowler in the zone quite like Ngidi. They lost six wickets for 24 ... and four wickets for five!
7.36pm And breathe. What an astonishing contest. South Africa got off to a flyer, England clawed them back. England got off to a flyer, South Africa clawed them back. And in a pulsating atmosphere at Buffalo Park, the hosts sealed a thriller! For the third time in three formats on this tour, South Africa strike first blood. But can they close this one out in games two and three?
Jamie: "Great innings overall from Morgan but massively tainted by that last shot. He'd broken the back and just needed singles...why oh why go for the Hollywood ending? " He will be fuming with himself. But his team-mates should have closed it out from there...
Tiaan: "Ngidi you absolute beast!!!"
Brett "Fish": "3.36am in the Philippines and worth every rollercoaster moment. Ngidi you beauty. All of the #ProteaFire "
Gosh. Cricket. Daft sport. Go on then, it's the era of the Super Over ... Forecaster has lost the plot, much like England
3 off 2.. I've heard that somewhere before...
Jordan. He hits a long ball ... but best not hit into the breeze eh ...? Moeen on strike for now..
MikeB: "Given the speed of his batting in the tests, perhaps England should have sent Mark Wood up the order!!!" Indeed. Seeing it like a planet!
Tasmeem: "Super over, anybody..??" Well, if you insist!
So, well played skipper, but he's still shaking his head in the dug-out. Now then, TC, can you take this home? He's seen off a few in the Big Bash of late...
Forecaster plummets to 27.7% ... make of that what you will!
AwaliCamel: "An extraordinary stat - Stoke's highest T20I score is just 38!" Crumbs!
Now then Moeen ... this is your stage now...
28 from 18 ... it's tight, but just in England's favour with three boundaries ... Ngidi's back
